    I want to come out to my parents bc the girl I’m dating is out and I want to go public with her but I’m afraid my parents won’t accept me.
    Hey Kylo

    Welcome to our support community. I'm one of the digital mentors here and it's my job to give advice to our members

    I'm sorry to hear that you are afraid that your parents won't accept you. Out of curiosity, what makes you think that? Remember, with coming out, you don't have to if you don't feel ready. It's also important to make sure it's safe to come out. By unsafe, I mean there's no chance you'll be put in any danger by getting kicked out or abused. Also, although some parents sadly do not react well to their children coming out, with time and patience, they often come round to the idea. Why don't you take a look at our support guide here and let me know what you think?

    With coming out, the advice I usually give is to just speak from the heart and be open and honest. I wonder, could you pretend that I'm one of your parents and come out to me? What would you say?
